Welcome to Lion’s Roar Dharma Center

Buddhist teachings at Lion’s Roar are especially designed for people with daily work, school and family commitments. As 21st Century Buddhists we promote and share basic human values and work through challenges and relationships openly. We live the concepts of compassion, tolerance, self-discipline and interdependence in order to achieve happiness and overcome suffering. We want to help people make the Lion Roar. We believe it is possible through practice and realization, no matter what one’s life circumstances. We aim to create an open and just society for everyone.
